Taking on Juli Kidman’s storyline in The Assignment is an interesting experience. Unlike Sebastian, she does not rely on weapons much and stealth plays an important role in her side of the story. But unlike the main game, the maps you encounter in her gameplay are streamlined and designed to work well to her very specific approach –a far cry from Sebastian’s clumsily applied stealth mechanics in the original game. But The Assignment is more than just an improvement on the gameplay. The story narrative, the enemy encounters, and the overall feel of the game is quite different in this DLC that is pretty much a must-play for anyone who tried out The Evil Within. Read More
The whole premise of Dying Light should clue you in that you are not some random, anonymous scrub trying to survive the sudden onslaught of zombies –no, you are a fully trained and combat-capable agent who is readily and willingly, entering a quarantined zone in order to fulfill a mission. If you looked at this game and was hoping for a by-the-skin-of-your-teeth day to day survival simulation, this is not it. But the first few hours in game may mislead you to think that way and to the very interesting game mechanic. Read on to learn more about Dying Light.

As big fans of the Ridley Scott films, it is easy to be very excited about Alien Isolation. It is designed to be scary, just like the original movies. The look and feel of the visuals would fit right in with the source material, and the way that the Alien moves around as it tries to hunt you down is nothing short of menacing in the frightfully wonderful kind of way. As good as everything looks and feels however, much of the game’s stealth and hiding mechanics feel contrived, and the super-randomized AI movement is nothing short of illogical that makes feel like the Alien has ADD. With all the great things clashing with strange game quirks, Alien Isolation is truly a strange experience waiting to be played. Read More
